The Mediterranean Association of International Schools (MAIS) has announced the annual finalists and semi-finalists of the 2019-2020 Robert Sills Student Award.
American School of Valencia is pleased to share that Maria K. (Grade 7) has been selected as a finalist, and Megan M. (Grade 7) has been recognized as a semi-finalist. Since the establishment of the MAIS Sills Award in 2011-2012, ASV students earned this prestigious award for Middle School students an impressive eight times.
The MAIS Sills Award award is “intended to recognize those young people who model the character traits that MAIS values most in its students: persistence, a willingness to take risks, acceptance of other cultures and points of view, and a genuine interest in a sustained commitment to the welfare of others.”
MAIS promotes global understanding, educational cooperation and the advancement of an international mindset among its 44 member schools from 17 different countries, including Austria, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Oman, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.
The MAIS Sills Award Selection Committee feels privileged in receiving numerous applications and portfolios from MAIS member schools.
Many congratulations to our ASV award winners, their families, and teachers.
